PRISM Annual Research Symposium, March 26-27, 2019

Please join us at the Princeton Institute for Science and Technology of Materials (PRISM) Annual Research Symposium on March 26th and 27th in Maeder Hall .  Our faculty, students and staff, along with technology business leaders, venture capitalists, practitioners and research collaborators across the materials research and engineering community will learn about the Institute’s science and technology programs, applications, accomplishments and future research directions.  Talks will highlight successful intellectual property development, innovation, and technology transfer efforts, as well as opportunities for high value commercial applications and societal benefit.

The symposium explores the Institute's leadership within its technical research thrusts in quantum materials science, photonics, optical materials, light matter interactions, molecular engineering of soft materials, living and bio-inspired materials, hard materials from the nano- to real-scale and beyond.  We will also explore the Institute's role as an enabler and facilitator of a wide range of Princeton University initiatives, its focus on nurturing a vibrant technology ecosystem and heralding a long-proven track-record in innovation, entrepreneurship and commercialization in partnership with industry and other external collaborators.

Keynote and featured presenters are Stephen R. Forrest, Professor of Electrical Engineering, Physics, and Materials Science & Engineering, University of Michigan, and founding Director of the New Jersey Advanced Technology Center for Photonics and Optoelectronic Materials (POEM) at Princeton University; 2016 Nobel Prize in Physics recipient, F. Duncan M. Haldane, Professor of Physics, Princeton University; Craig B. Arnold, PRISM Director and Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering; Alison Sweeney, Associate Professor of Physics & Astronomy, University of Pennsylvania; Romain Fardel, PhD, Materials Team Lead, Modern Meadow; Michael G. Hack, PhD, Vice President and General Manager of OLED Lighting & Custom Displays, Universal Display Corporation; and Jan Ringnalda, PhD, Principal Scientist, Materials & Structural Analysis, Thermo Fisher Scientific Company.
